The establishment has a 5* Guest House rating from TGCSA. This is important to note if you have been to 5 * hotels (boutique or otherwise) you may have different expectations. It is a large Guest house laid out on multiple levels against a hilly terrain giving it really great distant views of the ocean. Having been a private home... More

Stayed at The View while in Durban on Business. This is a great boutique hotel with large, well appointed bedrooms, a well equipped gym, a good restaurant, and some great views down to the coast. The staff are friendly and helpful, something highlighted by their willingness to sort out and resolve a mix-up with my booking.

We stayed for two days and found the service curt, inattentive and unbelievably slow. If you are happy to enjoy the view (including a lot of plastic plants) while waiting 2 hours for your meal to arrive then all is well.

I just stayed here for 2 nights - a last minute booking due to a change of plans. I did not see the reviews here until after I booked so was a little nervous. I need not have been concerned. Every member of staff I encountered was courteous, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Young driver "Small" did pick... More

We had a horrible stay at this place. Our room, although very beautiful to look at, was dirty, the aircon wasnt working so we could heat up the room. We asked for extra blankets but they didnt have any. Took a shower and it flooded the whole room, so had to hop around the room to avoid the water puddles.... More

I was given Room 405 - the last room on the edge of the property and very small. Bathroom was filled with ants., not one, not ten...but lots. Asked to change rooms '' sorry we... More

Went for lunch and to the Spa. Have to compliment all the staff on being so friendly and all looking so smart. The Spa treatment was to die for, so worth the money that was spent! An amazing day, thank you staff at The view!

Me and my husband was visiting Durban for my son who did SA gymnastics. It was 29 August 2014. We were impressed by the appearance of the hotel, but was very disappointed at the room they appointed us. We were 4 people (2 adults and 2 children - 5 years and 10 years). According to them we said we wanted... More
